One of Jen Forbus' favorite audiobooks of 2010:
Redemption Street by Reed Farrel Coleman; narrated by Andy Caploe (Audible) - Even though I started the Moe Prager series in print, Andy Caploe was able to voice Moe for me. He brings to life the sound of Coleman's sense of place in these novels. And I may start sounding like a broken record, but Caploe understands the humor and knows how to bring it through. This may seem unimportant, but if you've ever listened to a narrator who doesn't get the humor and glosses over it, you know how big a difference that makes. The other element that Caploe brings out in the narration is the internal struggle Moe deals with. This is essential to the plot and Caploe appreciates how much. Incredible performance.
Jen's favorite book cover of 2010:
Favorite cover of a book you read in 2010? – INNOCENT MONSTER. Spectacular cover. I mentioned it back when I interviewed Reed and gave kudos to Kristie Langone of 2Faced Design. I love this cover. This is a cover I'd hang on my wall as art!
